STONE SOUR has released a music video for the song "St. Marie". The clip was directed by Marc Klasfeld, who has helmed over two hundred music videos for artists such as Katy Perry, Jay-Z, RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS, Britney Spears, Kid Rock, Nelly, FOO FIGHTERS, Kelly Clarkson, Shakira, Avril Lavigne and AEROSMITH.
"St. Marie" is taken from STONE SOUR's latest album, "Hydrograd", which came out at the end of June and features the chart-topping rock radio hit "Song #3". The disc was recorded at Sphere Studios in North Hollywood, California with producer Jay Ruston, who has previously worked with ANTHRAX and STEEL PANTHER.
Singer Corey Taylor recently that Josh Rand will rejoin his STONE SOUR bandmates on the road on April 27 at the Welcome To Rockville festival in Jacksonville, Florida.
The guitarist most recently performed with STONE SOUR on the ShipRocked cruise before it was announced that he had entered treatment for unspecified issues. STONE SOUR enlisted a temporary replacement for the January/February tour, which included dates with HALESTORM, IN THIS MOMENT and RED SUN RISING.
Corey told the Regina rock radio station 104.9 The Wolf that Josh "is not just somebody who I've been in a band with for a while; we've been best friends since we were 15 years old — I mean, we go way back. For me, it's not just the worry of my cohort, my partner, my songwriting guy, my lead guitarist, it's about worrying about my friend, my brother, somebody who let me sleep on his floor when I was homeless," he said. "So, for me, that's the biggest thing — worrying about him. But he seems to be doing really, really well. And we just support him as much as we absolutely can. And when it comes to being a friend, that's all you really can do — just be there for them. The best way to be a friend is just to stay right where you are and just let somebody lean against you if they need it, and that's what we're trying to do."
STONE SOUR will support Ozzy Osbourne on the initial North American leg of the legendary vocalist's "No More Tours 2" tour, which kicks off August 30 in Allentown, Pennsylvania.
